Most families have to face the question of Sunday competition and/or recitals at some point. Sports, music, dance, debate, and speech competitions all have the possibility to be held on Sunday. Some families have hard and fast rules for the children that no Sunday competition is allowed. Others leave the choice up to the children, sometimes while encouraging them one way or the other.
Sometimes when youth refrain from competition for religious reasons, they are applauded for integrity to their beliefs and encounter few negative consequences. Sometimes the choice results in competition privileges being taken away—and sometimes it can result in criticism or derision. It is a decision that involves many different factors, and it varies as much as the people making the decision do.
So, how do you or your family (or both) handle the question of extracurricular activities on Sunday? Check out our poll below.
